Sidney (Neve Campbell) and Randy (Jamie Kennedy) are attending Windsor College. They see news reports that a couple (Jada Pinkett Smith and Omar Epps) were murdered in a movie theatre at the preview of the Stab movie, which was based on a book by Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox) about the Woodsboro murders (in other words, the events of the movie Scream). Phil Stevens is stabbed in the head through the wall of a bathroom cubicle. The killer then enters the cinema and sits next to Maureen Evans, and she assumes the killer is simply her boyfriend wearing a mask. During the Casey Becker kill scene in the film Stab, the crowd goes wild. Taking advantage of this, the killer stabs Maureen multiple times. Since many of the movie-goers are wearing the killer’s costume (as publicity material provided by the movie studio) and are all carrying fake knives, nobody takes Maureen’s attack seriously. Seriously wounded and dying, she climbs up the stairs in front of the movie screen and lets out one final cry. As the crowd realizes she isn’t faking, she falls down dead. Soon, Sidney and Randy realize that the nightmare is starting all over again.
Mrs. Loomis tries to convince Cotton to kill Sidney, but Cotton chooses to shoot Mrs. Loomis instead. Sidney and Cotton discover that Gale is wounded but alive, and they help her. Mickey suddenly jumps up dramatically, and Gale and Sidney shoot him multiple times. Then, Sidney turns around and decides to shoot Mrs. Loomis in the head â€” “just in case”. It is then revealed that despite his ordeal, Dewey survived his stabbing. He is wheeled out on a gurney and taken away in an ambulance. Gale decides to ride with the ambulance to the hospital. It turns out that Dewey’s scar tissue from previously being stabbed in the back prevented this latest stabbing from being fatal.
